Adams and Reese Nashville Office Partner Brad Lampley has recently been elected a Fellow of the Tennessee Bar Foundation, an association of 801 attorneys across the state. Invitations to membership, which is a position of honor, were extended to 29 attorneys this year by the Board of Trustees. The introduction of new Fellows took place at the annual Fellows' Dinner in Nashville.
The Bar Foundation's purpose is two-fold: to honor attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the profession and to administer a grant making program. That project, known by its acronym “IOLTA” (Interest On Lawyers' Trust Accounts), has awarded grants in excess of $20 million to law-related, public interest projects throughout Tennessee.
At Adams and Reese, Lampley serves as Partner in Charge of the Nashville office, and has served in that position since 2008. Lampley has a multifaceted practice, serving as legislative counsel to businesses and trade associations with interests before the Tennessee General Assembly and Tennessee state government. He has experience in the areas of transportation, energy, health care and insurance, among other fields. His practice also focuses on business litigation and commercial dispute resolution, with experience in banking and construction litigation, sports law and real estate.
Lampley was appointed by Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam to serve a five-year term on the University of Tennessee Board of Trustees. He also has served on the board of directors of the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl for more than a decade, during which time the bowl has grown to provide an average economic impact of more than $18 million per year for the Nashville area. He served as the bowl's Chairman in 2011 and 2012, the youngest Chairman in the bowl's history. Lampley also serves on the board of directors for the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame, and volunteers his time as a youth football coach.
Lampley was named to the inaugural class of the Nashville Business Journal’s Top Forty Under 40 in 2009, and in 2011, presented with the Nashville Emerging Leader Award in the Legal Services category.
Lampley received his J.D. from the University of Tennessee College of Law, in 2000, and he earned his B.A. from the University of Tennessee, in 1996.
